Welcome to "Like Father, Like Daughter"

Hello, Kat here! I wanted to introduce you to our comic book "Like Father, Like Daughter". I'm the writer for the title. This post will help you learn who I am, how the title came about, and what we plan for the future of the title. 

I started my online presence on May 2nd 2010 with Comic Duo. Comic Duo was a YouTube show my best friend and I started. We reviewed new comic books that came out every week. My friend left the show after a year or so then Comic Uno was born. I have over 5000 subscribers on the channel now and review comic books, TV shows, and more. I also belong to a group YouTube channel called Comic Frontline. Over there I post a lot of videos and belong to two podcasts Frontline Live and Media Madness. 

I have loved comic books all my life. Coincidentally, my dad introduced me to comic books at a young age. I grew up to love the medium and now happy to be able to contribute to it. 

How did "Like Father, Like Daughter" come about?  

Last year I took a screenplay writing class for my major. In this class we got our hands dirty and everyone had to create their own screenplay. That is when I created "Like Father, Like Daughter". 

 

This summer I was planning on writing another screenplay. Started to plot the idea in my head, and then I realized I wanted to share my stories with others. I had the screenplay for "Like Father, Like Daughter"' sitting on my desktop. Right then and there I decided to make "Like Father, Like Daughter into a comic book series. 

I started to write the first issue of "Like Father, Like Daughter" that night. The next step was to find an artist for the title. I made a video on my YouTube channel looking for an artist. The next day on twitter I got a message from Rashaan from Short Fuse Media. We then started our partnership for the comic book.

What is "Like Father, Like Daughter about?

I always wanted to write a high school superhero story, but when most people see this genre they write it off as generic teen agnst. I wanted to make "Like Father, Like Daughter" different from what people may expect. This title turns the superhero genre on its head. It pokes fun at comic book tropes, but at the same time tells a unique story. 

In this title, Invulnernable is the only superhero in the world. He left his family to be a full time hero. We follow the journey of his daughter Casey. She has to see Invulnerable everyday either on TV or in the newspappers. Everyone loves Invulnerable, but she knows his true colors. As the series goes on their will be alot of twist and turns to the story. Even though this series is about a superhero it has many grounded elements.  

What is our plan for the comic? 

Our plan is to upload some concept images for the series and then start uploading three one shot web comics for the readers to learn more about the characters. After this content is posted we will have a Kickstarter to fund issue 1. I will keep you up to date when we get closer to the Kickstarter.

I will be writing these blogs at least once a week to keep everyone up to date with the title. 

The Journey Starts Here,
